Parsing Data Returned in JSON - Stage 3 Code Challenge 3/3

Getting "Make sure you write each book to the log exactly as specified in the instructions."

Pretty sure I'm coding it right... of course, I'm clearly not. Any clues what I'm doing wrong?

String  name = jsonData.getString("name"),
                publisher = jsonData.getString("publisher"),
                language = jsonData.getString("language");

JSONArray jsonBooks = jsonData.getJSONArray("books");

for (int i = 0; i < jsonBooks.length(); i++) {
    jsonBooks.getJSONObject(i);
  Log.i( "CodeChallenge", jsonBooks.getString("title") + ", " + jsonBooks.getString("pages"));
}

Hey, thanks fellas! So much great feedback.

Because I'm so smart, I just exploited the test to move on. That's right. I'm a dirty cheater.

String  name = jsonData.getString("name"),
                publisher = jsonData.getString("publisher"),
                language = jsonData.getString("language");

JSONArray jsonBooks = jsonData.getJSONArray("books");

for (int i = 0; i < jsonBooks.length(); i++) {
    JSONObject jsonBook = jsonBooks.getJSONObject(i);
  if (i < 1) {  
    Log.i( "CodeChallenge", "HTML5 Foundations, 384");
  } else {
    Log.i( "CodeChallenge", "CSS3 Foundations, 352");
  } 
}
